The remains suspected to belong to a Gweru Police officer who went missing on 11 December 2020 in Gweru were reportedly found in Zvishavane 3 days ago, The Herald reports.
Mr. Promise Mariba told the publication that 36-year-old Sgt Benjamin Munoitei went missing on 11 December and a decomposing body suspected to be Sgt Munoitei was found in Zvishavane a few days ago:
He went missing on 11 December and since then he has not been found. There are, however, some decomposing body parts which were recently found in Zvishavane and there is suspicion that it could be his remains because he left home wearing his uniform. Police have taken the remains for some DNA tests.
We suspect he could have been trying to make some extra cash and was hired to Zvishavane where he could have ended up being killed. The car is still missing and police are still searching for it. I understand such tests can take up to a week to come out so we are still waiting
Sgt Munoitei was reportedly supposed to report for night duty at Mtapa Police station when he went missing on 11 December. Midlands provincial police spokesperson Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko was not able to comment on the issue yesterday. In late December 2019, another cop Constable Wonder Hokoyo was killed by a group of Mashurugwi in Battlefields in Kadoma.
